Summers in full swing but you’ve noticed that rather than looking like the radiant sun drenched goddess you feel like on the inside, you’re actually looking more sun-fried than sun-kissed. Here’s a few summer beauty tips to help you unleash the inner you… 

Keep Hydrated – As well as drinking lots of water throughout the day it is also important to keep your skin hydrated during long periods in the sun. So having a Face Mist in your beach bag is a must have. We recommend KAESO FRESH FACIAL MIST to help enliven and invigorate dull tired skin. Containing witch hazel and pomegranate extracts, this product helps to protect the skin against the environment and leave it looking and feeling hydrated, energised and refreshed.

Don’t forget you head – You’ve had it drummed into you by your parents since you where knee high to a grasshopper about the importance of wearing a hat to protect your scalp from the sun. But what about when you want to rock the ‘tousled tresses beach hair’ look that just won’t do itself justice if covered up with a hat? Although long locks will offer some protection from the sun, the sensitive skin along your parting will still be getting a pummeling from harmful UVA and UVB rays. This is where Kerastraight Sunspray shines, with its almost weightless mist. Just spray it onto your head, paying close attention to your parting and hairline for up to 8 times more protection. It also protects the hair from prolonged exposure to chlorine and salt water.

Take a cold shower – As well as being refreshing after a day of sun baking, a cold shower also helps to close the pores in your skin, which will decrease the chance of an acne breakout. Warm showers after sun exposure will only dry out your skin further and you’re more likely to peel. 

Red over white – The suns beating down and a nice glass of cold white wine would make for a perfect treat, right? Wrong! Although refreshing, red wine is far better than white due to its healing properties. Resveratol, a naturally occurring phenol found in the skin of red grapes can help to take away the redness of mild sunburn. It also has an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect.

Exfoliate – Exfoliation should be part of your weekly beauty regime all year round as is removes dead and dry skin cells that lay on the surface of the skin leaving a glowing complexion in its wake. Exfoliating is essential for tanning as the sun will be penetrating new skin cells meaning your sun tan will be more even and will last longer. Our recommendation would be KAESO BEAUTY EXFOLIATOR. This brand offer a selection of exfoliator products with differing therapeutical benefits such as calming, rehydrating and rebalancing, so you can choose the best one for your skin type and the environment you’re going to be exposing your skin to.
